  1. This made the rounds last year. Not my idea of a good time.

    Free climbing (no safety lines except to rest) the last part of a 1768 foot tower.

  5. My stomach did a little flip/flop just looking at those! If I were gonna try climbing that I'd wait till it warmed up a bit.

    Balls of steel!

    The shots from the top, looking down, either made me want to cling to something very tightly - or else to swan dive toward the earth. Is that weird? Like Gonzo would say, I wonder how far you could plummet before you blacked out?
    And on a related note{
    Does anyone besides me, if standing near a railroad crossing with a train whipping past, ever have a very tiny urge to lean forward?
